Australia, New Zealand & South Pacific
The coasts of Australia & New Zealand are well renowned for their stunning scenery and fantastic weather and therefore it makes sense that they should be a hugely popular cruise destination. While limited for some UK consumers by the length of time required the travel to the region, the growing Oceanic cruise market has seen a number of lines look to base ships there, including Royal Caribbean’s new Ovation of the Seas, as well as lines such as P&O Australia solely devoted to serving the local cruise industry.
Cruises here can be on larger ships, with most major cities offering a seaport and therefore being accessible to bigger vessels, while fantastic expedition cruising at the Great Barrier Reef and the stunning Kimberley Coast is also on offer to the more intrepid cruiser.
Oceania is a particularly popular world cruise destination and is often used as the start or finish point for a leg of such a voyage. With the distance required to travel there a cruise to or from Australia and New Zealand can offer a relaxing alternative to flying both ways and also offers a wealth of pre or post voyage stays for consumers who are willing to go the distance and explore this incredible area of the world.
